It's possible.  What puzzles me, though, is that the X11 headers were 
never missing; they were in /usr/X11R6/include all along.  [Maybe I 
didn't make that clear in my original post.]  It's just that those 
headers weren't found by the configure script.  So I thought that the 
installation of gcc-core might have done something to get the (already 
existing) headers into the search path for headers.  Is that impossible?
